Representing the smallest intelligent race
of all of Caelereth, Brownies average about 15
nailsbreadths in height. Their skin
comes in all the shades of tree bark, with matching hair and eyes. They are
strong for their size, energetic, and agile, with a tendency to be mischievous.
Redbark Brownies (all female) have an innate potential to become adept at
Magic (a form of Xeuá magic).
Laid out end-to-end, a little bit less than seven Brownies make a ped, on average.
Their skin comes in all the shades of a tree bark, with matching hair and eyes
(more info), and they have a somewhat angular look, having high cheekbones and
a rawboned but lithe build. They are strong for their size, highly
energetic and very agile, with a tendency to
is the general expression used to refer to a race of short people that commonly
live in settlements known as "Shires".
Some have given Halflings other names as well.
Centoraurians, for example,
commonly call them the "Holbytlan".
Others merely call them the "small folk". However,
though "Halfling" is the
most common expression, the members of the race itself
much prefer to be called "Hobbits" ("Green-People").
Hobbits are not commonly known among the major races of
Caelereth, because they are considered to
be a minor race, as they are not influential politically. They do not often
leave their shires, and some even believe this race to be mere myth, living only
in songs and tales. Hobbits are very much alive, though, and have a bright and
Hobbits are known for being fairly unobtrusive and fond of nature, peace, and
are usually very quiet beings.
They tend to be, not necessarily laid-back, but not hasty. They do not hurry
unnecessarily and take time to get from one place to another, or to complete a
project, believing that "good things come in time".
They are often self-content and unassuming, especially when it comes to the
things happening in the world. Hobbits do not often meddle in the affairs of
"big folk", and travel is not common
except through the shires in
which they live.
The exact derivation of
this race cannot be decided exactly. Very often gnomes are compared with
dwarves or even seen as a
sub-species of the dwarven race, but indeed this
assumption must be rejected. Gnomes in fact are smaller than
dwarves, about a
palmspan and a half
also don't have the stamina, nor the strength of the
dwarven race, but exceed them
in dexterity and agility (although they are no real match for a moderately
trained elf). However, this, and the fact that many of
gnomish kin do posses a love for material wealth, often is the cause that gnomes
are connected with thievery and burglary. This reputation is definetely
unfounded of the independent gnomes but it is unfortunately true of many gnomes
living among humans.
Gnomes are renowned for there skills at alchemy, glass production and medicine,
due to there ability with chemicals and their use of their dextrous hands and
good eyesight to measure minute quantities. As such they have made a large
amount of money trading and producing these chemicals for other people as well
as themselves and it is not uncommon to see incredibly wealthy gnomes
walking around in the towns of
The Goblins are often treated
as a race of their own, though in fact they have orcish
origins and are categorized by scholars as the Gob-Oc Orcs. It was not until
centuries after the Third Sarvonian War
when rumors spread about this
new race living deep under the Tandalas. The vast cave systems once created by
the Ylossian dwarves had become
the home to a powerful but unknown orcish nation that
seized it in the aftermath of the war. Most of the tunnels used by the advancing
armies were destroyed, but the Gob-Oc proved to be as determined and energetic
as the dwarves in working the stone and in later
centuries they reopened new routes to even greater cave systems which (at least
it is said) connect nearly the whole
Sarvonian North with the Tandalas.
Mullogs are a bit like small orcs in their appearance,
with the approximate size
of a dwarf. Mullogs have green or brown skins. A rare
crossbreed between halflings and
orcs who have been living in the Silvermarshes for centuries,
Mullogs are only known
to a few men. Being a race of
former refugees and outcasts, the
Mullogs also preferred to keep it that way and
have avoided all contact with the rest of the world.
Although Mullogs aren’t very aggressive, trespassers
won’t be allowed and so this race is suspected for many
unsettled deaths which happened in or
around the region of the Silvermarshes.
